TVA inspector general testifying at coal ash trial
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Valley Authority's inspector general whose report on the disastrous coal ash spill said it could have possibly been prevented is set to take the witness stand as the trial on damage lawsuits continues in Knoxville.
TVA Inspector General Richard Moore following a study after the December 2008 spill described TVA management's decision to allow TVA lawyers to hire a consultant and limit his focus as a "litigation strategy."
Moore is scheduled to take the witness stand on the fourth day of testimony at the federal bench trial.
TVA President and CEO Tom Kilgore testified Wednesday that he was not personally familiar with all the operating details at the Kingston Plant as plaintiff attorneys who contend TVA was negligent questioned him about why there weren't more preventive measures.
